Daily Zohar # 3374 – Shelach – The Yeshiva of Love and the Yeshiva of Light
112. וְהוּא לוֹקֵחַ בְּכָל יְשִׁיבָה, בְּסֵתֶר דַּקִּיק מִתְעוֹפְפִים כַּנְּשָׁרִים לְתוֹךְ יְשִׁיבַת הָאוֹר, וְהִיא יְשִׁיבַת מֹשֶׁה, וְכֻלָּם עוֹמְדִים בַּחוּץ וְלֹא נִכְנָסִים פְּנִימָה, פְּרָט לְאַהֲרֹן לְבַדּוֹ, וּלְפִי שָׁעָה נִקְרָאִים בְּשֵׁם.
113. וְאֵין מִי שֶׁיִּרְאֶה אֶת מֹשֶׁה, שֶׁהֲרֵי אוֹתוֹ מַסְוֶה שֶׁעַל פָּנָיו פָּרוּשׂ לְפָנָיו, וְשִׁבְעָה עַנְנֵי כָבוֹד סְבִיבוֹ. אַהֲרֹן עוֹמֵד תּוֹךְ הַפַּרְגּוֹד שֶׁלְּמַטָּה מִמֹּשֶׁה. וּפַרְגּוֹד פּוֹסֵק, וְלֹא פוֹסֵק בְּתוֹכָם. וְכָל רָאשֵׁי הַיְשִׁיבוֹת מִחוּץ לְפָרֹכֶת הַפַּרְגּוֹד הַזֶּה, וְכָל הַשְּׁאָר מִחוּץ לְאוֹתָם עֲנָנִים. וּכְפִי חִדּוּשֵׁי אוֹר הַתּוֹרָה שֶׁמְּאִירָה, כָּךְ מְאִירִים אוֹתָם עֲנָנִים.
Zohar Shelach Lecha
Rabbi Ilai calls the heads of the Yeshivas ‘Mountains’. He told them that the ‘Mountains’ they saw are the head of Yeshivas for the generation of the Israelites that lived during traveling in the wilderness. Now they have merit to study what they couldn’t in their life.
At times of Shabbat, new month, and holidays, these ‘mountains’ join the mountain of Aaron the high priest. They renew themselves with the Holy dew that comes down on his head and the anointing oil that flows down on him. With him, they reveal new beloved secrets of the King, and his Yeshiva is called the Yeshiva of love.
“כַּשֶּׁמֶן הַטּוֹב עַל הָרֹאשׁ יֹרֵד עַל הַזָּקָן זְקַן אַהֲרֹן שֶׁיֹּרֵד עַל פִּי מִדּוֹתָיו.”
“It is like the precious oil upon the head, Running down on the beard, The beard of Aaron, Running down on the edge of his garments.”
Aaron travels with the entire Yeshiva and secretly they fly like eagles into the Yeshivah of Light, which is the Yeshiva of Moses. Aaron goes in alone and all the rest stay outside until they are called at a specific time, meaning on Shabbat and Rosh Chodesh.
Moses has a veil on his face and no one can see him. Surrounding him are seven clouds of Glory. Aaron stands inside a curtain that separates him from Moses but this curtain separates and not separates between them. It means that this curtain doesn’t make a complete separation.
All the heads of the Yeshivas stand outside this curtain and the students of the Yeshivas are outside the seven clouds.
The clouds shine bright and illuminate according to the Torah secrets that are revealed inside the Yeshiva of Light.
The ‘dew’ is the Light of Zeir Anpin and the anointing oil is the Light of Chokmah.
The name of Zeir Anpin is יוד-הא-ואו-הא and its Light is the top three ‘יוד-הא-ואו’ with the numerical value of 39. It is the same as for ‘Dew’ ‘טל’. The last two letters of the name ‘הא’ are for Malchut that represent the vessel.
Oil, ‘שמן’ is numerically 390 and represents Chokmah that is the Light that comes to Zeir Anpin.
The scent/Aroma that we studied in the previous DZ is at the level of Binah.
